Synopsis

The Big Book of Nonsense Poems to Make You Laugh Out Loud by Colin West

The closest relative of man They say, is the orang-utan; And when I look at Grandpapa, I realize how right they are! Jam-packed with the very best nonsense rhymes and tricky tongue-twisters, this wonderfully exuberant collection contains quirky, colour illustrations from Colin West and lashings of his wildly wacky verse! Divided into sections to satisfy nonsense-lovers everywhere, this brilliant bumper book will keep children in fits for hours and may inspire them to become rollicking rhyme-makers themselves! Chapters include: Curious Creatures, Tricky Tongue-twisters, Funny Folk, Moments with Monsters, Dotty Ditties, Vicious Verses, Hopeless History, and Stories in Stanzas.

About the Author

Colin published his first collections of nonsense verse in 1975, shortly after graduating from The Royal College of Art, and since then has written over 60 children's books. His talent for off-message, anarchic laughter has brought him many fans, including America's Children's Laureate, Kenn Nesbitt, who calls him a master of the art of humorous poetry for children. Colin lives in Battle, East Sussex. Visit his website at www.colinwest.com

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
